Sister's Trip with My Girls

Every year the Girls in our family find a place  to spend a few days together for what we call our "Sister's Trip".
We go somewhere different every year.
This year was San Diego.
Beautiful Weather for Riding Bikes.

We all bring a little
"Sister's Trip Prize"
for each other.
 Usually it is one of our favorite things. Or something new we found and love.
This year I brought a project for my Prize.  

Kelly's reaction is typical of what they thought of this project.
A year ago at a Family Reunion we had a fabric exchange with Amy Butler Fabrics.
 Everyone ended up with 70 - 5 inch squares of about 30 different fabrics.  The challenge was to make a quilt out of the fabrics.  You don't have to use all of them.
I bought background fabric in different colors and they each designed their own quilt.





Look how cute they turned out.

They each started with the same colors

The Background really makes a difference.

They did some trading but they all turned out  fabulous.

I told them I would quilt them for them so I have to get busy.
Joni didn't get to come this year.  She stayed home to take care of her family that had the flu but a I will do a one on one with her to get hers finished.

I was allowed  one Quilt Store and this is the one I picked in San Diego.
Great Store and more fabric that i have ever seen in one store.
Great Time!
